That's a tough one to predict. There are only a few reasons why there would be used Venzas available: The owner didn't like it for some reason; the owner's personal situation changed - i.e. lost their job, got divorced, moved to an exotic island, etc; the owner put so many miles on it they wanted to unload it before it completely depreciated in the first year or two; or there also might be a salesman's demo available. Having said that, I checked CarMax's online inventory. They have 23, 780 used cars available in their entire network; of those, 344 are from the 2009 model year - none of them Venzas. While it's certainly possible there will be a used Venza or two available by September, the odds of them being in your area and with the equipment you want are pretty slim. A better bet would be to wait until the 2010 Venza's are available and see if you can get a leftover 2009 model at a greatly reduced price. Good luck.

md_outback: I have the same options you had listed and I am not sure as to what color youahve but I pruchsed the spl color (Blizzard Pearl with Ivory interior) for $33678.35+Tax and Tags from Fitzmall. There is one (similar to mine) at Fitzmall Chambersburg, PA and they have it listed for $34,487. I actually negotiated on this and they put my name against this vehicle but one showed up in MD before the one in PA and I was able to get. The delta between our price is $439.65 excluding TTL. Hope you are enjoying your vehicle?
#227 of 596 Pls help me to buy my first car

My name is Henry. I am very new here. I intend to buy a 2009 Venza with the following options: FWD ; V6
EJ: premium audio
SR: Panoramic sun roof
CQ: convenience package
SA: Security package
I checked in edmund. The invoice price is 28,572 & the MSRP is 32,120. The TMV is 29,609.
Could anyone help me to identify the out of the door price to buy this car?. What price is reasonable for my case?. I am living in Arizona and I do not know where is the best dealer to buy?. (sorry my english is limited).
Thank to everybody.

Mine is black w/light gray leather interior. Compared with the Venza you mentioned at FitzMall, PA, I don't have the special color, but I do have remote engine starter - so mine lists for about $300 more than that one. I think you got a fantastic deal on yours! So far I only have about 300 miles on my Venza and have no complaints. I feel the ride is about as smooth, quiet and comfortable as on my Lexus RX350, so I disagree with folks who say the 20" wheels & tires result in a rough ride (I have the Michelins). Also, my dealer has followed up with me three times to make sure everything is good, so they really seem to care about customerr satisfaction.
#229 of 596 Dealers & Internet pricing
May 15, 2009 (1:59 am)
My wife just retired and her lease on her current vehicle is up in Sept. She is interested in purchasing the 2009 Venza. I noted the internet pricing from Fitzmall. Looks great. However, when shopping on the internet and there are dealers closer by, has anyone found that the local dealers will honor a low internet price from another area on a similar car?

The farther your local dealer is from the Internet dealer, the less likely they are to match the pricing. A better strategy is to check online pricing for all the dealers within a reasonable (2-3 hour) drive away. You can locate all dealers using Toyota's web site or Edmunds.com. Many dealers show their current inventory as well as Internet pricing. Use these prices to negotiate with your preferred or nearest dealer. If all else fails, checkout the price of one-way air fare to Baltimore (lots of Southwest flights to BWI), add that to Fitzmall's price and see if your local dealer will beat that. I believe the Fitzmall folks will do most of the deal via email and phone, they'll pick you up at the airport, you sign the paperwork and then you get to drive your new Venza home. Good luck.

If you don't me asking - what interest rate did Toyota Finance your Venza at?
We had a ad in this Sunday paper talking about 0% interest on several Toyota cars but of course no Venza.
I was wondering what anyone is getting for interest rate finance with Toyota for the Venza???

May 18, 2009 (9:25 am)
we used the HELOC that we have at 4.24 but we did ask toyota about financing and they said something about 7.99% APR (no specials on Venza)
hope this helps

I was wondering when you guy's think there will be some used venza's out threre?
There may be dealer demos that hit the market towards the end of the year. I'm a little suspicious of "brand new" used cars -- makes me wonder why someone would take the financial hit and trade it.
For what it's worth, I just came back from Las Vegas and did not spot a single Venza, which mirrored my experience at home (other than mine, of course).
Granted, most of the vehicles driving in the touristy areas of Vegas are rentals or taxis, but I did see at least two 2010 RXs driving around (one of which, interestingly, was being used as a taxi).
